communities, the people who have been labour in the past said i do not think you're standing up for us and up. i think politicians are all the same. on the big issues people are caring about, jobs, housing, university finance, we're going to stand up for you. it is no surprise that people did not turn out for us. we have to get back on people's side. labour will reduce the housing lines. >> across the south of england, we've not address the problem of housing. it is a big failure of our government. they could get rid down and make away in the war. labour, we had become dangerously disconnected from ordinary people. they look for times that we're on the side of big business, not ordinary people. we are not standing up for our principles. we need to rebuild labour from the bottom up. >> i think it for you do as a member of the european parliament. we have to be a party for every part of this country. the way we've when support is recognizing that labour is right to say that. we have to have the courage to change. on a whole series of policies, on tuition fees, on issues like civil liberties.
